A long, and very straight, drive from Perth, east to Merredin the centre of the wheatfields and grainfields. Interesting driving along and being able to see for kilometres to the horizon on both sides, and the seemingly never-ending road ahead. I enjoyed seeing the red soil and the acre upon acre of planted grain crops, and it made me realise our dependence on our farmers for the food we eat. It must be a very harsh life and very dependent on the weather.
